Check out Jen Krupa if you get a chance, she's a really cool jazz trombonist.   Heard trombonist Shannon Barnett in Australia, she sounded excellent- fat sound, a very open improvisor.

Seriously, do we need this discussion in the year of 2005????

I wanted to ignore it, but I just can't let the topic starter off the hook here...

What is your problem?

So sad, you should apologize to all of us!

Yes, we apparently do need it.

We should give tombonechica a little slack - I suspect she is a young trombonist herself, looking for some female role models. Depsite her "lost cause" comment, let's give her the benefit of the doubt and take her question at face vaule.

And I for one am benefiting from this discussion - hopefully others are, too. I have not heard of some of the players mentioned here I'm getting some ideas for players to check out.

Paul McKee must be fuming at me at this very moment, for not being the first to mention his wife JoDee Davis!

Shame on me!

I have some great CDs from Nashville Symphony Orchestra-Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and Ives' Symphony No.2, and I've found out that assistant principal trombone of this orchestra is a woman - Susan K. Smith.

Turning to a more regional setting, we, in the SW Ohio area, are very fortunate to be able to work with a very fine female trombonist in our area, by the name fo Linda Landis (OTJ Forum member JazzPro). In fact, I had the pleasure of setting next to Linda, just this Sunday evening.

Linda was the former lead trombonist in the Dayton Jazz Orchestra (she was a charter member of the band when it originally formed-even before my time in the DJO) and is starting her second season as lead trombone in the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, led by Byron Stripling. Linda has also subbed in Diva.

I have worked with Linda for quite a few years, in various trombone settings, and she is the consumate "pro"on trombone, and she is always a great addition to any trombone section!

And in my region, San Diego, Louise Titlow is one of the most working musicians in town. Mostly classical, 1st or 2nd. Great player, just got a Shires TruBore.

April West (a former student of mine, he says proudly Good! ) works during the day as an elementary band teacher and gigs regularly with combos in this area. She is on several of the Tobacco Road CDs.

Monique Walchenbach is a graduate of Eastman. Great trombone player and an even more in demand Euphonium player.

San Diego Symphony has had two principal female trombonists in the past.

To the north, Jeannie Little in the LA area is regarded as one of the best in town, and has a national reputation.

And I have had about 100 girl-type students. Some of whom have won trombone scholarships and are majoring in college. Stephanie Waidelich is a name you will undoubtedly hear in the future.

A few years ago I used to ask the girls in HS why they were switching from flute or sax to low brass, stopped asking because it was always the same answer. The section is a lot more fun and friendly  Grin . Then they fall in love with the sound. Like all of us did. Good!

Denny--

I was wondering who "JazzPro" was when I noted that she was from the Dayton-Columbus area. She had a lot of really good posts on mouthpieces. Anyhow, she did some really top solo work on the Dayton Jazz Orchestra CD that I have so I can definitely vouch for her proficiency on trombone.

Dr. Jeannie Lee, currently Professor of Trombone at Morehead State University, Morehead KY.  She was my lesson provider when we were in Alaska.  At that time she was principal trombonist with the Anchorage Symphony.  She is as good a trombonist as I ever heard.  She plays a great big Edwards, and sounds a lot like Joe Alessi.  And she is a really good, patient teacher. I had the privilege of studying with her for about 9 months.  Good!

Susan Smith has a huge sound. Very funny and friendly person--a pleasure to gig with. She used to play in Jay Friedman's Chicagoland trombone choir. Wow.
